metmike thinks that they should allow his name to be placed on the ballet.
"The National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum's Board of Directors met by conference call in December and deliberated the ineligibility clause that is part of the Hall of Fame's Rules for Election. The Directors discussed the validity of the rule, whether it was still relevant and appropriate, and whether its alteration or removal should be considered.
"After extensive discussion, a vote was taken in which the Board ratified the resolution that was passed on February 4, 1991, known today as Rule 3(E) in the [Baseball Writers' Assn. of America's] election rules. As such, anyone deemed permanently ineligible by Major League Baseball, including Pete Rose, may not be considered for election to the Baseball Hall of Fame."
Yes.... (*end of thread*)
Absolutely yes. it's almost criminal for him not to be there.
I was always a no until recently. Different league but I am still going to use this as a reason. If Ray Lewis, a murderer< is allowed in next week in the nfl Hall then how can we justify keeping Rose out? By the way Carl I am almost certain that picture you showed when Pete ran thru the catcher ended that catchers career and livelihood. A legal play by Pete, yes it was, a damn stupid thing to do at an all-star game, absolutely, he should of slid and showed some sportsmanship. Hardly anything to celebrate or reason to voted in.
